Research and analysis
Leadership skills and behaviours of executive headteachers in secondary schools
Research into why the executive headship role in secondary schools is different.
The report includes a literature review and the findings of interviews with 7 executive headteachers, focussing on 5 main areas:
- specialist knowledge and behaviours
- skill set
- implications for talent management
The study suggests that executive headship has many leadership behaviours and skills in common with single-school headship. There are also areas, such as strategic planning, which require a different emphasis.
